Thanboday pagod...
 

Yangon

 
Yangon Myanmars capital has its very special charm, although some people rate Yangoon as very crowded and noisy. The many shady parks and beautiful lakes have earned a reputation as the garden city of the East. Its unmistakably colonial style buildings, open markets and wide treelined avenues endow it with a strange mix of old world charm and modern vitality. Every evening the streets of downtown Yangoon turn into one big supermarket. Streetvendors sell almost everything. You can also have a cheap meal on the streets. The highlight of the cityscape is the famous Shwedagon Pagoda especially near sunset. It towers above the Yangon landscape with a serenity so unique that it is often considered as one of the wonders of t...

Bago

Mandalay

 
Mandalay Mandalay is the second largest city after Yangoon with a population of over half a million. It doesn't look like a city, more like a big village. There's no skyline, and there are still some dirt roads. The city and its surroundings have a lot to offer to the traveller. It is also the jump-off point for Bagan and Lugu Lake or the North of the country. It is more Burmese than Yangoon and the people are very nice too. Mandalay was founded by King Mindon in 1857 and previously called Yadanatin. The Irrawady lies to the west of the former royal capital and the hazy Shan hills stand to the east. King Mindon was determined to ensure that his city became the capital of the Buddhist world and the Fifth Buddhist Synod was he...
 

Kyaiktiyo

 
Kyaiktiyo The Golden Rock (Kyaiktiyo) pagoda is in a spectacular location, perched on a huge, seemingly precarious boulder on the edge of a cliff. A hair of the Buddha is enshrined in the pagoda, which was supposed to have been given to a hermit monk, who kept it in his topknot. His last request was that the hair should be enshrined in a pagoda built on a rock, resembling his head. There is a popular belief that those who reach the top will grow rich, and the views are magnificent. Kyaiktiyo is only accessible in the dry season...
